Kuih Lompat Tikam

Which is very similar to Bubur Sum-sum, the latter which only contains only the white part of the cake made of rice flour dipped in palm sugar sauce (or gula melaka).

However, with kuih lompat tikam, it has a layer of green color (pandan flavored) base at the bottom with white layer (coconut milk) on top; usually also served in palm sugar sauce.

A modern day Kuih Lompat Tikam looks like this, found in a warung near TTDI.



It's a lot of softer than the usual kuih talam (green bottom white top malay cake); though my favorite Malay kuih will always be pandan kuih talam, the modern kuih lompat tikam is an interesting variety.

Looks gooey... I think I would prefer kuih talam. (but I haven't tried this before, so... )
